What to look for in high mileage 2006 Forester
We are looking at a 2006 Forester with 127,000 miles on it. the'06 seems to have good longevity but are we asking for trouble buying with such high mileage? What should we look for when we get into the specifics of this car? Should we expect to be repairing a lot of stuff this early on because of high mileage? This will be a first car for teenagers, who snowboard for fun and deliver pizzas for a job. Seems like the ideal vehicle, safe, reliable(?), handles well in snow (we live in Chicago). PRice is $7000.00 which is low but, I;m thinking it's because of the high miles. Any thoughts?
